    Oh boy, I really don't know where to start!
    I have been losing all my life and now I started to see a bit of success!

    TO EVERYBODY: PLEASE FIND JOY IN DIFFICULT TIME and that will help you a lot!
    A part of my success was from this community! Thank you BHW. before 7-9 months I was bankrupt and had 00.00 money then thanks to bhw pieces of information I got 7usd then from that 7usd I started growing and arrived where i am today.

    don't give up just stay focused.

    Not millions, but I bought REQ in 2017 at $0.05, watched it go to $1.20, got greedy, didn’t sell. Saw the bubble burst, was in denial and held, finally sold with only a little profit.

    Technically not a loss because I still made money, but at some point I had 24x that money. So it kind of feels like a loss :rolleyes:

    I bought just before everything kicked off at $13 for Eth and 1.1k for Bitcoin and sold at the peak. So on paper I did really well but in all honesty I screwed up big time and it was all just luck anyway.

    The only reason I put money into it in the beginning was because I had several thousand in cash in the house and a retaliative with sticky fingers staying with us. I didn't want to put said money in the bank so I had only one other option. So because because of that thieving family member I made 20k lol. True story!

    Had I not messed about with it and left it putting it into a bunch of shitcoins and left it in just Ether I would have walked away with hundreds of thousands, but instead I tried to play a game that I had no idea how the rules worked and made just some money by accident instead of hundreds of thousands, c'est la vie.

    So don't feel bad, I think most of us did the same thing :)

    My worst loss was not capitalizing on IM in the 2013-2016 period, when I had the perfect conditions to do so. Keeping all eggs in one basket and thinking that something will last for a long time was a mistake that I will never ever repeat. A huge loss of time and potential money - though an important lesson learned!

    Hahaha, thanks to your relative :D Ah yeah, the shitcoin gambling. 2017 was a fun year! I'm still kicking myself because I knew about Crypto in 2013 already, even bought Dogecoin in 2014 (no idea why I didn't buy Bitcoin lol). Forgot aubout the Dogecoin until 2017, made 60 bucks :D Not much, but I still was happy when I found it on my wallet after all these years. Syncing the blockchain alone took over a day.
    A lot of fun (and some sad) stories. It was a wild ride.

    500K, frikin wallstreet, going all in with zero experience, longing and shorting using 10x that amount from the broker, over 8 months...... was going to end life..... but decided it aint worth it, it happened for a reason.... started a diet, did other drastic things to supress the loss, could not stop thinking about it.... here i am about a year later, and just moving ahead, but i cannot stop looking back, it hurts too much, it was $ that was earned with sweat and a lot of hard work....... to lose it so fast and so nasty is just........................

    Damn, and here I thought I had it bad. Realizing how "lucky" I've been.
    Lost about $30-40k due to shitty partners, scammers and services that haven't worked

    $1.2M, 9 years, relationship, and sanity on a brewery.

    Stick with online investments. Much less chaos.

    Lost another 16k on rare coin investment.
    Another 12k on a coding bootcamp. what a joke that was. Still paying for it.
